Dear Family of Mary!
Here is Our Lady’s message given through Marija on June 25, 2016:
“Dear children! Give thanks to God with me for the gift of my being with you. Pray, little children, and live God’s commandments that it may be good for you on earth. Today, on this day of grace, I desire to give you my motherly blessing of peace and of my love. I intercede for you with my Son and call you to persevere in prayer so that, with you, I can realize my plans. Thank you for having responded to my call.”
Thanks be to God for this beautiful message! Thanks be to Our Lady for bringing this message to us! We are blessed to be her children!
Yesterday was a glorious day in Medjugorje. It began for our group with another trip up Apparition Hill, this time with Franjo Zubac.
Franjo shared about the first days of the apparitions from his own witness. The group listened with great interest to his personal witness, and experiences of Our Lady’s coming! What a beautiful day to listen to the beginning days!
The afternoon was filled with the anticipation of the celebration of the 35th. Denis and I sat outside behind the church with our crew to pray the Daily Rosary, live!! Mario and Vlado did all the work. It was very hot, but the trees provided a canopy of shade. Here are pictures of Vlado and Mario producing the Rosary for us!
Then at 6:00 pm the Parish Rosary was prayed with thousands of people who streamed into Medjugorje! People walked from the surrounding villages, in the very hot weather. It was impressive.
At 7:00 pm a huge procession of several hundred priests accompanied the statue of Our Lady around the entire crowd! It brought tears to our eyes! She is so loved here in Medjugorje!!
Here are the priests processing in to kiss the Altar and find their seats!
Mass was incredible!! There was an orchestra from Dubrovnik and a beautiful choir from Medjugorje. So moving!
At the end of Mass the visionaries Ivan, Marija and Jakov led us in praying the Magnificat. It was awesome!
Denis and I are in awe at the great love for Our Lady that is so evident in the people. A young man standing near us was singing his heart out to Our Lady. I just wanted to hug him!! Everyone was filled with love for Mother Mary!!
Now I’m exhausted! Will catch up with you tomorrow!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
